lights on lights off

Does switching the lights on and off use more energy than leaving them on? The answer is no, despite the common misperception that turning a light on creates a power surge. The thinking is that it's more economical to just leave a light on rather than pay the costs of flicking it back on.

So if you're strictly concerned about saving energy (and money), you should turn your lights out when you're not using them.
